The outside of the home needed a full overhaul – we removed a poorly constructed lean-to on the back of the house, added new siding and a roof, and built a deck. We added some curb appeal with inexpensive landscaping and a picket fence.
We also removed the old garage and rebuilt it – larger and nicer than ever.
Here’s a look at the deconstruction process – my grandpa, both of our dads and Ryan took down this garage piece by piece. It turned out great!
Oh, the bathroom was the place where horror movies begin. Lots of scary music and things hidden behind cabinets. If you wanna know what we found, you can read the entire story. But suffice to say it needed serious help.
As with many old, modest homes, the master bedroom is really just another bedroom. But I think we made this room worthy of the title. (And don’t miss our DIY upholstered headboard.)
Upstairs hallway and laundry
The upstairs of this house had three bedrooms, including one of the smallest (and dirtiest) bedrooms I’ve ever seen.
But the good news is that a tiny bedroom can become a spacious bathroom – it was a wonderful addition to have a second bathroom upstairs.
If ever a room needed some love, it was this room. Walls were punched out, doors were removed, and everything was covered in graffiti.
A lot of paint and new carpet was almost all it took (and a lot of elbow grease). We also created a larger closet in the eaves, which was a welcome addition in our old home.
Thanks for visiting! This home was a true labor of love. After working all day, we rushed to this home to work all night and every weekend! We are proud of how far we came.
